16 weeks

I really want to document this pregnancy as best I can so that I can go back and see how far I've come.   I was hoping to take cute weekly photos like some bloggers have but I'm not sure that is going to happen all the time, so for now you get the self portrait in the mirror.  

How far along? 16 weeks
Baby Size: a Turnip
Total weight gain/loss: 6 pounds-  I didn't gain anything for the first 12 weeks and then I gained 6lbs from weeks 11-15! I was shocked and concerned but my doctor was happy with it so I will go with it.
I decided to go by the doctors scale and only weigh at my appointments. I'm afraid that if I weigh myself every week I might make myself crazy. 
Maternity clothes?  I've started wearing maternity pants  and they are AMAZING, I may never go back to regular pants. I am still in regular tops and think I will be for awhile. I gain most of my weigh in my backside (as you can see my Kim K butt in the pic) so that is where most of it has gone so far.
Stretch marks? No and hoping it stays that way
Sleep:  It's ok, I feel like it's getting worse week by week. I usually get up at least 2x a night to pee and I hate sleeping on my side so that has made it tough. I also started getting hip and shoulder pain so I've staring sleeping with a pillow between my legs which gives me a little relief 
Best moment this week:  I feel like I'm finally getting a real bump instead of just looking chubby. I also had a Dr appt last week and heard the heartbeat at 152- best sound ever!
Miss Anything?  I definitely missed wine and champagne over the holidays but I probably miss my Dunkin Donuts coffee the most! 
 Movement: I think I've possibly felt movement but I'm not sure if its baby or tummy rumblings
Food cravings: Milk - I HATE milk normally and I usually drink Soy or Almond milk but now I love a big glass of milk or chocolate milk.  I also don't want skim it must be 1 or 2%. I probably haven't had a glass of milk since I was 8 and now I have one almost every day.   Pregnancy cravings are so weird.
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nothing is really bothering me anymore- I'm not a huge fan of meat these days including chicken 
Have you started to show yet: a little bump is finally there!
Gender prediction: I just have this feeling that it’s a boy! I don’t know why but I do, my mom, sister and husband think girl
Labor Signs:  No
Belly Button in or out?  In
Wedding rings on or off?  On
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy and relaxed most of the time but I do still have worries here and there.  I will admit that sometimes I get moody if I don’t get enough sleep
Looking forward to:  My gender ultrasound in 2 weeks- can't wait to find out!


  1. You should def try and do weekly pictures- already I am loving be able to look back and see! I had a gut feeling ours was a boy and I was right. I also did a chinese gender prediction which proved correct! :)

  9. You look adorable. And those pregnancy cravings are not messing around. Obey them! I was with you on the chicken...I couldn't eat it for a while either. And then I could eat cooked chicken fine, but had a serious aversion to looking at raw chicken. I had to have Ryan cook it for me without me seeing it or I'd get really nauseous. I couldn't even go in the meat aisle at the grocery store without wanting to vomit. Weird.

  10. You look so cute! I love seeing weekly pics of other bloggers!

    1. Weekly pregnancy pics, haha! Forgot to add that in there!
